Did Rogers still have equity in TopSpin at the time of this acquisition?


A bold and interesting move forward in the inevitable consolidation and vertical integration of streaming music. I wonder if any other streaming services are considering acquiring music crowdfunding sites like Pledgemusic, distributors like CD Baby, or performance sites like StageIt or ConcertWindow.

I agree there will be more consolidation. And while I'm not sure I see synergies with CD Baby, I certainly can see online concerts as a related value-added service.


I agree about the consolidations and wonder when some of this will start to have an impact on the biz side of music.
